Advanced Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerance (GD&T)

This two-day course is intended to enable participants to apply and interpret the concepts and benefits of specifying and dimensioning products using functional quotation, tolerance of form, and position. Participants will construct a clear vision of the existing paradox within the industry. Example: "Why this characteristic is non-conforming to the specification and the part mounts function well in the product?" or "Why the part is within the specification, but doesn't mount or work properly with the customer?"

Throughout the course, each participant will have conditions to interpret and dimensions to specify using functional quotation and tolerances of form and position.

Prerequisites: Knowledge of reading and interpretation of basic drawing (drawing on sights and cuts)

CEU credit: 1.50
